Perma-lay™ Concrete Overlay

Concrete Resurfacing & Overlay Application in Greater Montréal

Restore your driveway or patio with our overlay system

Purlift Inc is a Montréal based company providing decorative concrete overlays as an alternative to breaking out and replacing existing concrete slabs, which can be expensive, messy, disruptive, and time-consuming. With an overlay, you can give worn, lackluster concrete a decorative makeover or restore it to like-new condition in as little as a day and at a fraction of replacement cost. Improving the look of your concrete slabs is easy with decorative concrete resurfacing by applying a thin layer of cement based material, or overlay, directly on existing concrete.

Our Perma-lay™ Concrete Overlay can be used in commercial, residential, industrial and municipal applications and is ideal for:

  • Resurfacing interior floors, including those that are damaged, cracked, or spalled.
  • Restoring old, tired-looking outdoor slabs using a wide variety of decorative options. Using special techniques and tools, skilled installers can rehabilitate most areas by adding pattern, texture, and colour to patios, pool decks, driveways, sidewalks and more.
  • Replicating the look and feel of natural stone, brick, tile, or slate.
  • Smoothing and leveling uneven, spalled, scaled, or worn out concrete surfaces.
  • Reconditioning surfaces quickly with minimal downtime. Polymer overlays cure fast and can support foot traffic within a few hours.

Rehabilitate timeworn concrete by resurfacing it with an overlay to bring new life to your home or yard. Whether you want to improve the look of your patio, pool deck, and walkways, or cover up cracks in your driveway, resurfacing is a great option for both indoor and outdoor concrete.

Decorative options

Performance attributes

Micro-toppings or skim coats

1/16 to 1/8 inch

Sprayed on, broomed to a texture, or troweled silky smooth, colour can be incorporated into the mix or can be accented with stains and dyes.               

Applied super-thin, giving the ability to flex, unlike other systems. Can also be applied to wall surfaces.

Spray-down or knock-down systems


1/16 to 1/8 inch

Usually applied as a splatter coat or a knock-down (troweled) finish. A wide array of coloured sealers available.

Stampable overlays


¼ to 3/8 inch

Stamped and textured (similar to conventional stamped concrete) in order to mimic brick, slate, natural stone and other materials. A wide array of colour options available.
